Customized Portrait Pens from Montegrappa
Montegrappa’s portrait pens feature timeless themes from horses in full gallop and vintage automobiles to classic speedboats and modern GT cars in all their muscular glory.
From a palette of 24 colours, the client selects the hue that best defines and complements the mood and spirit of the personal image engraved into metal. The choices range from earthy tones to primary colours to gem-like mixtures, while every celluloid cap and barrel add to the individuality of the pen through the uniqueness of the material’s natural grain structure.
Using age-old techniques and traditional tools, the engravers translate the customer’s chosen image into a pattern to be engraved on solid silver or gold, at the client’s behest. It is here that true artistry transforms the portrait pen into a unique objet d’art.
